Yep Wilt...full agreement (and if you go by DOF calculators, aperture setting is proportional to crop factor when considering equivalences). Shall I buy the beer now? :-)

Only if you won't try to bring up resolution having any effect on blur.

I propose taking the "blur" out of photography entirely;-)a Photographers should be concerned with the "focused" areas of light.

Oh, I give up! ... I'm signing off this thread....


davesrose wrote in post #17679608 (external link)
Now hopefully this thread can be put to rest....


davesrose wrote in post #17679888 (external link)
Anyways, I'm not going to engage in name calling, and am going to disengage these circular arguments:-)


davesrose wrote in post #17676812 (external link)
...so I am signing off this thread.

My appologies for any offenses

These all sound like good suggestions... ;)

Yes, Teamspeed, point well taken. But this thread kept calling me back, because I like logic problems;-)a The road's been rough, but think everyone is on the same page now. Round of beers on me!!!

On that point we agree...digital photographers today put way too much emphasis on 'bokeh' (mistakenly used term, instead of 'blur')

I think that part of the problem is that Dave is concerned with overall sharpness, of which DoF is one component, the resolution of the capturing sensor is a second, and the resolution of the output device is a third, while everyone else is (pardon the expression) focused on the DoF presentation that was in the original question. Can we agree to that, and close this discussion?

Well, I started it. If it matters, I'm done. Thanks all.
